Autumn is easily the best time of the year to get outside and stuck into the garden.
With the extremes of temperatures for a short time blissfully under control, currently around our home, it's all hands-on-deck to get our outdoors looking spiffy before the big chill sets in.
Sadly our yard is far from swish at any time of year. (Please feel free to conjure-up images of weeds, leaves, children's toys, muddy holes and general junk spread artfully across our quarter acre block - all with thanks to our kids.) Believe me when I say our garden is far from Pinterest-worthy! We are trying bit by bit, to get there though. Lately especially, we've been buying plants and tools and getting our kids involved in all things to do with beautifying our own piece of earth and it's working beautifully on so many levels.
